ADJ591: Independent Study

1-3 Credit(s)
Prerequisite(s): A minimum GPA of 3.2 is required
An independent study is a focused study on a subject outside the graduate catalog. An independent study provides the opportunity for original and in-depth research on a specific topic or regional issue of the candidate’s interest and professional focus. It is an important part of the curriculum and should be used to supplement existing coursework. A student selects a topic of research from a single field of learning or one which is interdisciplinary and prepares a research paper to be submitted at the end of the semester (recommended minimum of 20 pages). The quality of the research paper should be appropriate to graduate level research. A list of preliminary readings and/or assignments and a means of assessment/evaluation are clearly defined in advance of the study. (see guidelines and appropriate forms located on the registrar’s website).
